Star Trek / Alice Eve

Just before Thanksgiving it was revealed that not only would composer and regular J.J Abrams collaborator Michael Giacchino return to score the developing Star Trek sequel, but the film is now set for a May 17th, 2013 release in 3D. Rumors that Benicio del Toro being up for the villain role have also surfaced, and Abrams himself has actually confirmed talks with the actor, but now another new cast member has surfaced. Variety reports Alice Eve, the star of She's Out of My League who will be seen in Men in Black III next summer, has been chosen to take the role of a character that is believed to be new to the Star Trek canon.

Eve apparently beat out other accented talents like Australian Teresa Palmer and British Hayley Atwell for the part. Will she play a new cadet in Starfleet Academy, a crew member of the U.S.S. Enterprise, or maybe some alien seductress? Either way, she'll definitely add another pretty face to the ensemble cast that has Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana and Karl Urban returning for the sequel. Apparently there's one more major role left to cast that is said to be older and more of a supporting character to del Toro's villain. So far the plot has been kept under tight wraps, but Abrams usual suspects of Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof are scripting the film with production slated to begin early next year.

    Alice Eve is really gorgeous and very talented. I hope she is playing a human love interest for James Kirk.

    - The Orion Syndicate as the villains - Large all-star cast as well as many cameos - More planets - Larger space battles with more starships - Kirk having better fighting skills - The Star Trek theme music from the Insurrection end credits used at the end
